Jess Walker, middle child of a middle class family, has perfected the art of vanishing in plain sight. But when she arrives at a concrete university campus under flat, grey, East Anglian skies, her world flares with colour.

Drawn into a tightly-knit group of rule breakers – led by their maverick teacher, Lorna Clay – Jess begins to experiment with a new version of herself. But the dynamic between the friends begins to darken as they share secrets, lovers and finally a tragedy. Soon Jess is thrown up against the question she fears most: what is the true cost of an extraordinary life?

    This is a brilliant piece of writing. At first go, you might not like the lead characters very much, but as time progresses you’ll start to, if not care, become curious about them. The relationship between Jess and the engimatic Lorna is particularly compelling – in the end, I just couldn’t put it down!
